Manchester United's executive-vice chairman Ed Woodward has been appointed onto UEFA's Professional Football Strategy Council, following changes to the committee and leadership of the European Club Association.
The position sees Mr Woodward placed as one of four senior executives in the role, who will advise and assist in the structure of European football's governing body, while he continues with his daily duties and position at Manchester United.
The United chief is the only executive in English football to hold the role and is joined by representatives from Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Celtic to form the newly appointed advisory board.
Speaking of his new position, Ed Woodward commented: "I am delighted to have been appointed to represent the ECA on UEFA's Professional Football Strategy Council. The PFSC plays a vital role in shaping football across the continent and ensuring that it develops in a sustainable way, to the benefit of the game as a whole."
Further changes to the European Club Association have seen Juventus' Andrea Agnelli become the second ECA chairman, following Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who served in the position since the body was founded in 2008.
In recognition of his significant contribution and commitment to the development of European club football over the past nine years, Rummenigge was awarded the first-ever ECA honorary chairmanship.
Also taking up a new position is former United keeper and now Ajax's chief executive officer, Edwin van der Sar, who has been appointed as second vice-chairman to the ECA executive Board.
